Good tunes, nice recording
I stumbled across this one while looking for some Kimock. I'm pleasantly surprised. The band sounds quite good for a first outing. It's nice to see Martyn getting some work, The Mermen haven't been doing much lately.
One correction: The Frisell and Zappa songs should be swapped, Zappa did "Muffin Man", Frisell did "Egg Radio".

These guys are true players....
Alot of great instrumental music here with a very dominant guitar player. The keys and drums compliment the guitar very nicely. And sprinkled throughout the show are a few killer bass solos by Liam (also in the band Zero). The covers are done very well. Especially Fearless. And the originals pulling from the likes of Frisell and Kimock are very melodic and jazzy. Overall a tremendous first show for this upcoming collaboration of musicians.
